"server has already received unit"

Postby bdub » Wed May 25, 2011 8:10 am

been getting a lot of these lately, and i think i am being denied points because of it. i am using 6-core server machines with 6 different machine-coded instances running at the same time. sometimes units go thru when done, but many times that message is given.
is it simply because the units are getting done at the same time, and they need to be spread out? or some other reason??? i am using an image to build the os's (win7x64) on each of these boxes, and the .cfg file for each instance is included. but each machine is activated seperately and has it's own SIDS identifiers.

here's an example of the cfg file...




any help????

Each process must have its own unique identity as to machine number.. but your account number (user ID) would be the same. Ensure each process is in its own uniquely named folder.
Check the Task Manager processes.. there should be a separate listing for each of the six active applications. Yes, you may have duplicate work units. But if the execution process confuses them, then you likely will loose a unit.

But give a few days leeway.. possibly the units will be properly credited after evaluation by the scientists.
F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
